We had a fantastic week investigating, experimenting and exploring Science in W.N.S. Amazing explorations took place around the school from magnets, electricity, floating and sinking, dissolving colours, frozen ice cube animals to Leonardo Da Vinci’s inventions.
4th and 5th class took part in a Woodlands Workshop with a lady from Green Schools and Science Week. Well done everyone!

Everyone has been working really well since we came back to school. This month we have been learning about the signs of autumn, the number 6 and an scoil. We went on a nature walk this week. We investigated the things that we collected and did colourful leaf rubbings. We also planted daffodil bulbs for spring. We are looking forward to Hallowe’en!

The Le Chéile classes and some friends went on a nature walk yesterday. We saw lovely trees, plants, flowers and even some cows. The boys and girls did very well.

The children spent time running, climbing, swinging, balancing, jumping, laughing and smiling. We are lucky to have such a wonderful playground in our community!
